HASH(0x98fc0f30) out of 5 stars Lookout - your child will want a Plaidypus too! 26 July 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding Verified Purchase
My 3-1/2 year old daughter loved everything about this book, which we borrowed from the library. The poetry of it and repetitive story helped her to memorize it, and she chimed in a lot on the second and later readings. It's fun for adults to read, too - it's a sweet story, and not too long, too short, or too ridiculous. I am thankful for any children's author who makes it easy on the parents (and thus, not a great fan of all the long Dr. Seuss books!).

However, I will say that I think this book should include, on its final pages, a pattern to make your own Plaidypus, because now my daughter can't stand not to have one of her own! I will have to get creative, and make one myself... if I do, I'll post instructions on her website!

HASH(0x99b28894) out of 5 stars Delightful 25 Mar. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
As a youth services librarian, this is the kind of book I'd classify as the perfect storytime book. Publishers take note: we want larger pictures, with warm, vivid illustrations. It also helps that this book uses repetition, sequencing, concepts like left and right--all great early literacy skills we want to share with our preschoolers. Besides--this is a fun, silly, suspenseful book. Check it out!

HASH(0x995f61a8) out of 5 stars glad i found "Plaidypus Lost" 2 April 2004
By brad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
this is a great children's book. my 4yr. old loves it. it has a good story and beautiful illustrations. the story is about a homemade stuffed animal(platypus) handsewn by the child's grandmother that repeatedly gets lost and found while the child is off on many child-related adventures. sure to delight any child ages 2 to 7 or 8ish. highly recommended.
HASH(0x995f5908) out of 5 stars My 2 year old's favorite book 17 Jun. 2005
By S. Hilpert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Library Binding
My daughter loves this book! It provides opportunities for interactive reading as she "looks left, look right" and "over and under" when the story line tells her to. Unlike many children's stories, this one has a nice plot, as the girl loses her favorite toy over and over again. My daughter enjoys the relationship between the grandmother and the forgetful little girl. What is best is the repetition of some of the words so that my 2 year old can "read" her memorized passages along with me. Buy this book for storytime and for nighttime reading.
HASH(0x9948ae10) out of 5 stars What a terrific book! 7 Aug. 2008

My 4 year old and I check out 40 books every 2-3 weeks from the library. One out of 100 books go on the "Must own for our little library list". She loves it and I haven't minded reading it 20 times so far...actually she now reads it to me. We're talking to Grandma to see if she can stitch together our own plaidypus..I agree with the previous reviewer who stated that they should have included a pattern to make him. We bought this book right away and still read it at least weekly.
